TOKYO, JAPAN -- Toyota's latest car is only 7'10.5" long and three and-a-half-feet wide.

The single-seat electric car can go 31 miles on a single six-hour charge.

Starting at $8400, Toyota hopes to sell three-thousand of these tiny cars this year.

A major Japanese convenience store chain plans to use the vehicle for its home delivery service.

All right, it's small.....but it's not that small. 54 inches long and 41 inches wide.

It's the peel p-50 origionally built on the isle of man and now resurrected as a kit car in Britain.

It's the smallest car in the world...and it even has a door. Toyota doesn't.

The beauty of the peel-50 was that you could drive it to work....all the way to your desk....if the elevator was big enough.
